    At least 40 killed in 'terrorist attack' at concert hall near Moscow

    At least 40 people are believed to have been killed while over 100 others were wounded in a shooting incident that took place at the Crocus City Hall concert venue near Moscow, Russian intel services said. As many as 100 individuals, who were taking shelter in the basement of the building to protect themselves from the shooting and explosions, were evacuated by the emergency services.

    Reports indicated that four individuals in camouflage attire opened fire at the people, leaving many wounded as the five dozen ambulances rushed to the tragic incident site to extend aid.


    Moreover, an explosion and subsequent fire were also reported at the location of the shooting. Reportedly, the perpetrators, in combat fatigues, had automatic weapons. Despite circulating videos on social media platforms, where the roof of the hall also seems to be collapsing, there is no official confirmation regarding the number of casualties in the appalling incident, which took place nearly 20 kilometres from Moscow’s Red Square.


    Russian media RT.com has reported that the attackers barricaded themselves inside of the building that is now engulfed in flames after the deadly shooting. Theatre tickets at the hall were sold out, reports added.


    Following the attack, Moscow has called off all mass gatherings and has bolstered security measures at airports and stations. A helicopter has been dispatched to quell the fires at the venue.

    Russia has labeled this as a "monstrous" crime. Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov condemned the violence, denouncing it as an act of "violence, brutality and recklessness" against civilians.


    White House national security spokesperson John Kirby reportedly stated, "There’s no indication at this time that Ukraine, or Ukrainians were involved in the shooting … We’re taking a look at it, but I would disabuse you at this early hour of any connection to Ukraine.”


    These attacks come after the US embassy in Russia issued a security alert to American citizens, warning of potential extremists' plans to target large gatherings in Moscow, including concerts.


    It remained uncertain whether authorities had successfully neutralised the assailants.


    “The terrorists are armed with AKM assault rifles,” a media report said quoting an eyewitness. “Some carry unloads with various ammunition. At least two of the attackers are carrying backpacks, possibly with molotov cocktails."

    Putin’s henchmen and their false flag operation mounted a day or so after the Pig finally concedes his ‘ special operation ‘ is a war. That half the population are either too stupid or frightened to grasp the reality Ukraine’s invasion is the fruit of a megalomaniac’s new Russian empire building fantasy, waged by the entire prison population of Russia’s criminal classes freed to live in savagery, is simply a testament to their worthlessness.
    Fuck ‘em.

    Or, it’s an Isis thing.

    Still, fuck ‘em.

    The actual election results must have been pretty bad if they're resorting to this 9-11 like popularity booster again.

    Yep. They have disappeared in the crowd and still not arrested. Death toll up to 60+ with 100 wounded.

    Putin's (specifically) and Russia's (generally) oppression of Muslims

    I rather think the British have oppressed more victims during its imperial subjugation of 1/3 of the world. You wanker.

    Why blame all Brits as being oppressors? Most were just badly educated people following orders given to them by better educated arse-holes who were just lining their family pockets back home.

    that was then. you, like your irish, the mohammedans and of course our coloured brethren, seem obsessed with events that happened centuries ago, much like expecting those who never owned slaves to pay reparations to those who were never slaves, and demanding in the high dudgeon of perceived entitlement, that we should forever flagellate ourselves over events that we had no control over.

    move on you miserable old windbag. like the above mentioned malcontents, you cant see beyond your anger and hatred.
    for how many more centuries are you going to bang your fists.

    there is a life to be lived. live it.

    Remember the Americans issued a warning a week or so ago about an imminent attack in Moscow.

    Russias meddling in the Syrian conflict probably has a lot to do with this attack.

    I have to say that I find it hard to feel much sympathy for Russian civilians killed in this atrocity, but fully accept that this is probably unfair.

    How much sympathy is shown by Russians for the tens of thousands of Ukranian civilian deaths while going about their daily business, caused by their special operation, now finally called a war?

    Of course the average Russian civilian has no influence and can do nothing about their leadership, but even so, can't help the way I feel about it.
